Report an Absence

Notify the school as early as possible to report your child's absence, late arrival or early dismissal. Attendance can only be communicated by a parent or guardian, regardless of the student's age.

Main Campus

Email the Office (preferred): lwhsattendance@lakotaonline.com 
Call the Attendance Line: 513-682-4115 (option 3)

Freshman Campus

Email the Office (preferred): lwfsattendance@lakotaonline.com 
Call the Attendance Line: 513-682-4235 (option 3)

To be considered present, students must attend school for four hours and 31 minutes. Any amount of time less than that will count as a full day of absence. For example, if you arrive after 8:05 a.m. (and up through 12:35 p.m.), it is considered a tardy. If you arrive after 12:36, it is considered a full day of absence. If you leave before 10:09 a.m., it is considered a full day of absence. If you leave after 10:10 a.m., it is considered an early dismissal (or tardy). 

Automated Attendance Calls

We use Lakota's notification system to alert you of a child’s unexcused absence from school. This automated system helps expedite our daily process for absence notifications and uses the same parent/guardian phone number and email address provided through Home Access Center. 

If your child is absent or going to be tardy from school for any reason, you must notify the school by 8:00 a.m. (freshman campus) or 8:30 a.m. (main campus). If your child is marked absent and you have not reported the absence by this time, you will receive a call and email between 8:45 and 9 a.m. (freshman campus) or 9:45 and 10 a.m. (main campus). To respond to the automated call, you will need to call the main office. Failure to report the reason will result in an unexcused absence. 


Excessive Absences or Tardies

A parent will be notified by email or phone once a student has reached the maximum number of tardies and absences. After a student has accumulated six absences per semester (excluding those verified by a doctor’s note) a physicians note will be required for an excused absence. Only exceptions are by an administrator or a completed excused absence form which is located in the front office.
